THE Fishy Italian Affair with Spaghetti and Salmon Meat Balls  


Time and again I have mentioned my love for the meaty Salmon fish and the great flavors and benefits the fish offers. Though, I am not a big fan of Italian food and I run away from having anything which has white sauce in it, I decided to pick some wheat flour Spaghetti and team it up with Salmon Meat Balls after successfully creating and gorging the salmon cakes few days back. The meaty fish complements the Spaghetti when served with red sauce and can become a meal in itself .

Let’s learn how to make the dish which is surely going to surprise you.
